People in Mallorca speak Spanish and Mallorquin (a dialect of Catalan). English is widely spoken, so if your Spanish is a bit rusty no one will mind. We do recommend you try though – the locals will definitely appreciate the effort.
In Mallorca, the currency is the Euro and as you might expect, you can get money out from cash points in Mallorca or at the airport when you arrive. Credit cards are accepted widely, so you shouldn’t have a problem using plastic to buy things.
Tipping is at your own discretion. If you would like to leave a tip we ask that you please hand an envelope/tips to a member of the management team at the end of your stay so we can ensure tips are distributed evenly to all the staff. Please let them know if you wish your tips to go to someone in particular. If you have any questions about tipping, please speak to a member of our management team.
Outside of the Son Bunyola estate, tipping is generally expected in restaurants, bars, taxis and so on. As a guide this should be 10% of the cost of the service.
Malllorca really is a year round destination. July and August are typically the hottest months on the island with temperatures reaching 30°C. However, even during the winter months, the temperature in Mallorca rarely drops below 15°C and from February onwards you will get the sunny fresh days with very little rain.
WHAT TO PACK
Son Bunyola is your home away from home so you can be as informal or formal as you like. Your summer attire will depend on what kind of activities you have planned. Make use of the pool and pack your swimwear, or if you go on a walk then don’t forget to pack a good pair of trainers, a sunhat, sunglasses and plenty of sunscreen too. Spring (March, April and May) and autumn (September, October and November) are cooler months, so clever layering is the key to dressing for changeable weather.
